YA Steampunk Fantasy (mild Christian themes)
As the daughter of a chandler, Banhi’s life seemed boring. That is until one day when she found she could manipulate the flames coming from the candles she made.
In a word seemingly void of mages, magic has all but disappeared through the years. Fearing to live as an outcast and being exiled for having such a dangerous gift in a forest village, she decides to take a voyage beyond the great seas.
Will Banhi find more than she bargained for?

From the Author
This story has been developing in my mind for a while. I wanted to fast-forward through time in Orinda, to where steam and electricity moved out the need for mages. I wanted to explore Orinda further, to take Banhi to the outlands, where primitive peoples live.
I am seeking representation for this and other novels.
